We want to be difference makers.

But how do we do it?

With conviction and humor, bestselling author Kyle Idleman challenges true disciples to fully commit to the unexpected, Jesus way of changing the world: by loving people one at a time. He helps us understand Jesus's surprising habits, unlock the power of small things done with great love, and discover how God wants to use us to change the world one person at a time.

"Kyle Idleman is rock solid. He loves the Bible, loves people, and loves to teach people the Bible. If you read this book, you can expect to be encouraged, challenged, and better because of it."

Max Lucado, New York Times bestselling author

"Kyle has written yet another terrific book. He reminds us about the power of presence and taking a genuine interest in the person right in front of us rather than being distracted by the many other shiny things around us. It isn't new math to influence a few more people that you will find in these pages but a reminder of the old math Jesus used to change the entire world."

Bob Goff, author of New York Times bestsellers Love Does, Everybody Always, and Dream Big

"As Christians, we want our lives to matter, to count for something. We may be tempted to measure our efforts by numbers, but Jesus was clearly focused on one person at a time. If we really want to be faithful followers of Christ, we need to follow his example. In this book, Kyle Idleman will help you see yourself as a true influencer and identify how to change the world One at a Time."

Craig Groeschel, pastor of Life Church and New York Times bestselling author

"I have been blown away by Kyle Idleman's kindness and support. This book helped me understand the source of his kindness and support: he was just following Jesus. The truths in the chapters ahead are both revolutionary and simple. This book is going to change Christians, one at a time."

Jonathan "JP" Pokluda, pastor of Harris Creek and bestselling author

"One at a Time is a deeply personal book written for the hands and feet of Jesus--his followers. We are the ones called to share, serve, and sacrifice. We are the anointed empowered to care for others. In this encouragement, Kyle Idleman is realistic: we cannot do everything for everyone, but we can be there for one another one at a time. He shows us how."

Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker and lead pastor of National Community Church

"Kyle Idleman is a fresh and powerful voice for faith in our time. With clarity and insight, One at a Time shows how you can change the world and have a meaningful impact."

Jud Wilhite, senior pastor of Central Church and author of Uncaged

"Do you want to make a big impact with your life? Then go small! Try focusing your attention and activities on one person whom God wants you to reach for him--and watch what happens. After all, revivals start one individual at a time. In this practical and entertaining guide, my friend Kyle Idleman will inspire and equip you to take the path blazed by Jesus himself. Whatever you do, don't miss the adventure that awaits you!"

Lee Strobel, founding director, Strobel Center for Evangelism and Applied Apologetics at Colorado Christian University

"One at a Time is the way of Jesus, so it should be our practice as well. Kyle Idleman shares this compelling insight with persuasive stories from the Scriptures and modern life. Whether we are called to disciple a questioning follower, rescue an unwanted child, or care for a needy neighbor, we can only do it one by one. In the name of Jesus, read this book and minister to others one at a time."

Roland Warren, CEO of Care Net and author of Raising Sons of Promise

"A few years ago, I was backstage after finishing up an event in Louisville. I'd recently recovered from an illness, and I was sitting alone with my own thoughts when Kyle walked up. He asked how I was feeling and how my family was doing, and our conversation lasted twenty or thirty minutes. I was deeply encouraged and spurred on by our chat, and I've never forgotten it. As I was reading Kyle's new book, I was struck that before this book ever existed, he was living this 'one at a time' mantra, and in that moment backstage, I was the one he was impacting and influencing. I was the one."

Luke Smallbone, For King & Country

"One at a Time is a unique roadmap to influence. It is a testimony of a church transformed and a pastor molded by Jesus's passion to see people in the crowd, not crowds of people. Do you want to be influential? One at a Time is your template."

Mark E. Moore, PhD, author of Core 52 and teaching pastor at Christ's Church of the Valley

"One at a Time is the way of Jesus, so it should be our practice as well. Kyle Idleman shares this compelling insight with persuasive stories from the Scriptures and modern life. Whether we are called to disciple a questioning follower, rescue an unwanted child, or care for a needy neighbor, we can only do it one by one. In the name of Jesus, read this book and minister to others one at a time."

Roland Warren, president and CEO of Care Net and author of Raising Sons of Promise
